The Chanel show always offers up a well-choreographed example of how the connection between high fashion and beauty can be a seamless one. Karl Lagerfed tells his go-to face painter, Peter Philips, about his sartorial vision—the fabrics, the colors, the themes (which for Fall included a dark forest equipped with dancing shadows and breaks of light)—and Philips doesn’t just oblige with a corresponding makeup look, he actually makes products to properly fit the bill. This season, it ...Read more
“You’ve got to mention Goody,” Guido Palau modestly implored as the oohs and ahhs over his “hair helmet” backstage at McQueen started flying. The popular mass-market hair accessory brand sent him 6,000 silver and metallic black barrettes for the show, which were splayed out in Tupperware buckets in a cavernous area behind the makeshift runway setup at La Concierge. With 100 barrettes designated to each of the 34 models in Sarah Burton’s show, Palau used over half of the...Read more
Throughout Guido Palau’s ponytail tour this season, in which he has constructed the easy updo from New York to Paris, the coiffing star has stressed that the beauty of the familiar style is the way you can make it look different by implementing small changes.

Cosmetics companies had their hands full with lawsuits in which it was determined that if the magical powers of false lashes, wigs, and computers were used to create images, it had to be noted in (fine) print....Read more
In France, where good skincare trumps expensive makeup—there’s more of a “solve the problem, rather than cover it up” mentality—the pharmacy is king. Sure, there are loads of Sephoras from which to procure your favorite upmarket, niche cosmetics, but the regular old drugstore has a wealth of options to keep your complexion blemish-, wrinkle-, and oil-free. And thanks to the wonder that is globalization, many of the country’s best-kept skin secrets have been imported to the U.S., making Avène, Nuxe, Biotherm, Lierac, Klorane, and La Roche-Posay nearly hous...Read more
